Parish History

A chapel which was built as part of the British Lying-in-Hospital, Endell Street Holborn, was founded in 1749 and closed in 1913. Close to 100,000 baptisms and births occurred during its operation. It was one of four lying-in hospitals established in Greater London in the mid-18th century. This hospital was principally intended for the "wives of poor industrious Tradesmen or distressed House-keepers" and the wives of soldiers and sailors. It was exclusive for married women only.
